How can I apply for a core values scholarship?
Scholarship applications are available online and can be accessed by clicking here or the apply button above. As part of the application, you must submit a one-page (typed, double-spaced) essay, addressing how you best embody the core values promoted and upheld by Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions (RMU). The seven core values of RMU are:

  1. Evidence-Based: We achieve the best possible outcomes by combining the best available evidence with our expertise and input from our university community.
  2. Learning-Centered: By challenging thinking, encouraging growth, and exploring possibilities within a supportive learning environment, we empower learners to rise to their highest potential.
  3. Authentic: We recognize our imperfections and welcome growth stemming from both success and failure. We believe in our unlimited capacities to find solutions. We model gratitude. We seek to understand, to empathize, and to forgive.
  4. Service-Oriented: Because we value people above all else, we serve each other, our patients and clients, our communities, and the world.
  5. Trustworthy: We strive for honesty, respect, and accountability in all we do to continuously earn credibility as an institution and as individuals.
  6. Inclusive: By honoring our difference and similarities, we strengthen institutional and community connections.
  7. Collaborative: We learn and create within and across teams to innovate, foster change, implement strategy, ensure accountability, and celebrate achievement.

A core values scholarship will be awarded to students that best demonstrate their personal alignment with the university’s core values through written examples and self-examination (as determined by the scholarship committee), in addition to evidence of a sound academic record.

Are there admission or GPA requirements for a core values scholarship?
Students must be admitted to RMU and be registered for a full-time class schedule to apply. Those who are selected to receive a core values scholarship will be required to maintain satisfactory academic progress (3.0 GPA or greater) each semester of attendance in their chosen program and remain continuously enrolled as a full-time student.

What is the application deadline for core values scholarships?
There are three application cycles throughout the year. Applications are accepted on the first (1st) of July (fall semester), November (winter semester), and March (summer semester), respectively. The deadline for each of these application periods is on the fifteenth (15th) of the months stated above (the scholarship application cycle schedule may also be found on the previous page).

How will I know if I was selected for a core values scholarship?
Students will be disbursed the scholarship funds after the add/drop deadline date (as indicated on the academic calendar) or after the third week of each corresponding semester.

If you are a Financial Aid recipient, receiving any scholarship will affect your Cost of Attendance (COA), and it is your responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office if you are selected for an award. Should you be awarded a scholarship from any source (internal or external), take time to send the institution a “Thank You” letter.
